Disney FrankenFoods: Fried Banana Sundae at Disney California Adventure

When awesome Disney food just isn’t enough, the mad scientists of the DisneyFoodBlog world get to work. And what results is pure Disney (food) magic: Disney FrankenFoods.

FrankenFoods come alive when we mix and match some of our favorite Disney Parks foods, creating new combinations (and possibly opening portals in the universe of food… no one knows for sure). All we know is that it’s fun (and usually delicious).

Our good friend Heather Sievers of @DiningInDisney fame recently embarked on a quest to build a Fried Banana Sundae. Here’s how she did it.

Heather started this FrankenFoods journey at Award Wieners in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure.

Review: Paradise Pier Ice Cream Co. at Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort

I know, I know: you’re still catching your breath after our whirlwind 2017 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival coverage… ‘cuz so am I. But did you know that just days before the Festival kicked off, I spent some quality time on the west coast, too?  (Well, you did if you follow me on Instagram!)

Yep! I went to Disneyland! And of course my trip included a stop at Paradise Pier in Disney California Adventure.

Welcome!

Welcome!

This super fun, boardwalk-themed area is full of lights, music, laughter, and mega-good eats. We’re talking Boardwalk Pizza & PastaBayside Brews, and the famous Corn Dog Castle, for starters! Ariel’s Grotto offers Character Dining, and you’ll also find Paradise Garden Grill, where you can nosh on Mediterranean-inspired skewers, PLUS my very favorite spot: Cove Bar (where you can check out the Secret Menu!).

But on this visit I had my sights set on something a little sweeter. Enter Paradise Pier Ice Cream Co.! [Read more…]

Yep — there is so much good stuff in Disneyland that we had to split this one into two episodes, or we’d all run the risk of overstimulation! :-D

In this first video, we’ll start you off at River Belle Terrace. This classic spot has been around for ages, but these days, it’s table service. And it’s also the home of some secret menu items: Loaded Tots! You Guys. I promise. You need these in your life. But THEN, we head to Cafe Orleans, where I share my favorite picks from that classic menu! [Read more…]

More Cute Disney Food Art! Halloween Edition

Think August is too early for Halloween? Well, not exactly… at least not in Magic Kingdom, where preparations are on for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party which kicks off on August 25th! Disneyland follows suit on September 20th with Mickey’s Halloween Party.

Someone else is getting ready for Halloween, too… our friend Donna Yan, who creates Cute Food Art featuring iconic Disney snacks! And she JUST came out with three prints for the most ghoulish time of the year! Just look at all the details on the Mickey Beignets and Mint Julep — Halloween Version print (Hello, Zero!). That Maleficent krispy treat is epic. And see the spiderweb detail on the Mickey balloon, just like they have in the parks during the Halloween season??

Review: Churro Cotton Candy (with a Churro!) in Downtown Disney at Disneyland

Heather Sievers, our Disneyland correspondent and the queen behind @DiningInDisney, knows how to have fun with Disney food. She’s hooking us up with Disney Frankenfoods, which are mash-ups between two (or more!) complementary Disney foods. Today we have one of her most recent food combos — a Churro Cotton Candy Churro!

Churro Cotton Candy is found in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney. You can find tubs of cotton candy in unique flavors like Strawberry Lemonade, Green Apple, and Pina Colada! These tubs are super convenient; it’s a lot easier to keep your cotton candy fresh throughout the day when it comes in a tub rather than a bag.

Heather went straight for the Churro Cotton Candy. But she also knew it wasn’t quite complete. Because what could go better with Churro Cotton Candy than an actual Churro? So she grabbed one of those, too. Wrap that cinnamon-sugar stick in the spiced spun sugar, and BA-DAH-BING!

You’ve got yourself a Churro Cotton Candy Churro! [Read more…]
